Shraddha Kapoor launched the teaser of her upcoming film Haseena Parkar, with director Apoorva Lakhia and her co-star Ankur Bhatia on Facebook Live today.
Haseena was popularly known as “Aapa”- a name that sent shivers in Mumbai’s Nagpada area. The film is a true story based on the life and times of the sister of India’s Most Wanted Man – Dawood Ibrahim.
Watch the teaser here:
The film charts her journey from a young girl to a mother of four to the Godmother of Nagpada across four decades in the Maximum City. The role of Dawood will be essayed by Shraddha’s brother Siddhanth Kapoor, who marks his entry into Bollywood with this film. This will also be the first time that fans will see the siblings in a film together.
According to reports, Shraddha went the extra mile to get into the skin of her character. Apart from undergoing a number of physical changes – by sporting prosthetics – the actress also did her bit of research in order to portray the titular role to the best of her capabilities.
